this one thing to my own surprise in boehner's defense which is that even if he is for it, it may be a little bit early for him to tip his hand because that gives the opposition time to generate more opposition. but, it still will remain a huge question as to whether he will permit this to come to the floor. the sort of gossip or open secret in washington right now is that if he does and if it passes and if the republican base is as furious as everybody expects them to be, that might be the end of his speakership. he would have to make that decision, knowing that, you know, his days as speaker might be be numbered. >> john: the g.o.p.-led house as you know, has passed the fewest bills since they began keeping track of this back in 1947. so, michael, what does it say about john boehner's leadership when he qualified his party's inaction by saying it is not how many laws you pass but by how many you repeal. they're only working nine days the entire month of september. >> absolutely shocking statement and actually, my column that will be up tomorrow morning on the "daily beast" is ab
weiner, but a defense from his wife huma abedin as well. >> anthony has made horrible mistakes, both before he resigned from congress and after. but i do very strongly believe that that is between us and our marriage. really what i want to say elections, i have forgiven him. i believe in him. and as we have said from the beginning we're moving forward. >> john: horrible mistakes, is that just like saying bill clinton was too familiar with the help? this latest apology which took place on tuesday regarding another woman another bunch of sex texts and pictures of mr. weiner's apparatus all took place just a few months before his mayoral run. here to talk discuss whether we should even be talking about it my panel mr. rick unger the wonderful tom doorty, and author comedian jeff krisler. thankthank you for being here. horrible mistakes. is that like calling the ruling peevish. >> when it happens twice he's admitting it's wrong. and i'm starting to think as a new york city resident maybe he should be mayor. he can't be trusted with all this time on his hands. >> and he has other things o
do you say to that defense, sir? >> part of it is i'm not totally sure where those numbers come from. they may be accurate but when we visited the facilities, when we talked to people who work in these facilities, they describe scenes more like this. like one person, two people, a few people working on a shift. not lots of folks. and you know, for example, in a trial that occurred in northern california, the testimony in the trial, the documents produced in the trial was that in one of the memory care units, there was nobody on staff on certain nights. in the memory care unit where the woman died in texas, there was one person on duty, on staff according to police reports. that's more the kind of thing we've heard about. >> john: tonight, 48 years to the day after president johnson signed the social security amendments into law which provide for medicaid and medicare. i don't know if you know about that coincidence but i would like to ask before we go, what should people look for and what are some warning signs when they seek to place an elder loved one into a care facility like this
